How do I get a copy of my discharge papers?

Your discharge (DD214 or equivalent) is a very important document, because your eligibility for all VA benefits is determined by it. There are a number of sources from which you may be able to get certified copies or photo-copies your discharge papers. Our veterans service office will assist you.

You may submit electronic requests for discharge papers from the National Archives.
